Election Results For New York, New Jersey and Virginia

By ConcernedConservative on November 4, 2009

The results are in from Tuesday’s elections and it is looking good for the Republicans.  When Obama was running for president it was the Independents who helped gain him the victory over the Republicans.  However, this time around the Independents came through big for Republicans as the GOP took political control from Democrats in both Virginia and New Jersey.

Conservative Republican Bob McDonnell won over Democrat R. Creigh Deeds for Governor in Virginia gaining 59% of the votes.  This will be the first time in 12 years that a Republican Governor has been in office in Virginia.    It was a good day for Republicans in Virginia all around as they would also win races for lieutenant governor and attorney general as well. 

Similar results were had for Republican Chris Christie in New Jersey as he beat first term Democratic governor Jon Corzine.  This also will be New Jersey’s first Republican Governor they have had in 12 years. 

We were not so lucky when it came to the race for New York’s 23rd congressional district seat as Bill Owens beat Republican Doug Hoffman receiving 4% more votes.  This is surprising as this is a heavily conservative area of New York and it has been more then a century since Republicans have lost in the region according to msnbc.  Also with several endorsements from big names including Sarah Palin it is a huge disappointment that Hoffman was defeated. 

Despite the loss in New York, it was a great day for Republicans and a horrible day for our President.
